The button to jump directly to a work item by specifying its ID looks to be on the Work Item Tracking toolbar by default in VS / TFS 2010. This button is not on the toolbar by default in VS / TFS 2008 though. To add it yourself just go to Tools => Customize, then choose the category Team and the command Go To Work Item…, and you can drag the command into one of your existing toolbars.
If you want to setup a keyboard shortcut for the command, just go to Tools => Options => Environment => Keyboard, and the command is called Team.GotoWorkItem. I map it to Ctrl + Shift + / since Ctrl + / is the C# keyboard shortcut to search in a file.
